So it's a little retro, but it just seems to sum up the last few days.

We closed on our house- Awesome!

How was my Mother's Day? Awesome.

What does it feel like to be the mother of such amazing little girls? Awesome.

The girls were playing with stickers yesterday and Bailey put one on my nose. Do you know what it said? That's right...Awesome.

Skylar had surgery to remove her tonsils and adenoids. How is she doing? Awesome.
Just look at this little face.

I will post some pictures of our house soon. For now, we are focusing on Skylar's recovery. Thanks for all the prayers. I know that tonsillectomies and adenoidectomies are "common" but putting my baby under general anesthesia, having her intubated, and cutting part of her throat open is not "common" for me. By and large our children have been VERY healthy. We are extremely blessed that we are not familiar with surgeries and tons of dr visits. I was a little anxious but definitely felt the peace of all the prayer being sent up for us. She came through with flying colors and even asked for french fries when she woke up. :) All the nurses commented on how beautiful her big blue eyes were (I know...they're awesome) and how well she did. She drank two glasses of gatorade, ate two popsicles and then promptly fell asleep in my lap (as did my hiney in what turned out to be the most uncomfortable chair!). But I enjoyed just letting her sleep in my lap. I watched The Little Mermaid (and finished her french fries). And the Dr. just called. From his cell phone. On his way home. He's awesome.


  1. Okay so as soon as I saw the picture I knew I was going to comment on those incredible blue eyes...but then you went and said it yourself! So glad Skylar is doing so well and for all the other AWESOME things going on!

  2. Glad things are going well. Anesthesia would make me nervous too. And don't you just love doctors like that?! My obgyn is that kind of doctor - she called to check on me once on her way from one emergency to another in a different hospital. personal cell phone. Amazing.

    By the way, I thought about you guys today as I drove down Staples Mill and passed the road that would've led to your old house. That happens a lot, though. :)

  3. Glad things are getting better...I can't imagine. What doesn't kill us will make us stronger. AWESOME POST!!

  4. So glad she's doing alright with it - I know as a mom it would be super hard on me too :) I'm excited for you guys and your house!
